Book Being Challenged but Why?

Why Challenge a Meaningful Book?

Many people have decided that the book Go Tell it on the Mountain by James Baldwin should be challenged. I, on the other hand, have read this book and find that it has a strong lesson or meaning. High school students everywhere should have the freedom to read this book in class. The tragic and confusing life that John Grimes, the main character, lives is very inspirational. Kids would most definitely learn a lot about racism, Christianity and the stuggles of finding yourself. So once again I ask; why ban this book?
